Smart meters are being touted as one of the biggest developments in electricity supply since we first started using electric lights more than a century ago, but what are they?
Put simply, a smart meter is a digital meter located at your home or business that measures the amount of electricity used virtually in real-time.
Unlike a traditional electricity meter, a smart meter digitally reads and stores the electricity usage over short intervals, typically every 30 minutes, and then remotely sends this information to energy distributors and retailers every day. Smart meters allow two-way communication between the meter and the central system.
The energy retailer can then pass this information on to the consumer, providing some real-time energy data to inform their energy usage.
Smart meter technology will help you to remotely switch off your appliances before you arrive home so your house can be cool in summer and warm in winter.
